Brockmeyer hits for cycle to beat Snappers
On a day when extra-base hits were a dime a dozen, Cael Brockmeyer still managed to steal the show.
Kane County's catcher belted a ninth-inning triple that allowed him to plate the winning run and hit for the cycle all at the same time.
The Cougars held off Beloit, 9-7, at Pohlman Field to send the Snappers to their sixth straight loss.
There were 13 extra-base hits in the game, including three doubles for Snappers first baseman B.A. Vollmuth and the first-career home run for Oakland Athletic's first-round pick Matt Chapman. Brockmeyer was 4-for-5 with three runs scored and four driven in.
The two teams traded six runs apiece between the second and fifth innings. Kane County took the lead in the top of the eighth, but Beloit tied the game again with a run in the bottom of the eighth, setting up Brockmeyer's heroics.
The two teams finish a four-game series at 7 p.m. tonight in Beloit.
